Thursday - ReviMo Classroom Style Day 4 with Meg Miller
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Once I write something, it's hard for me to go back and revise it. My eyeballs don't want to read it and my brain tries to tell me that the story is finished. This doesn't actually work for writing! I make grammar mistakes, part of my story is unclear, my story doesn't flow, or sometimes I need to add detail to add spice to the story.
Fortunately there are some tricks to get a new perspective on a story and jump start revisions!
Tricks to jumpstart revisions:
1. Read a story you really enjoy, this helps get you into story writing mode.
2. Pretend your story is a movie and watch it in your head. Is it interesting? Does it make sense? Are there some details you can add to make your story more clear?
3. Have someone else read your story out loud. This is a great way to get a fresh perspective on your story!
